Speaking on his SiriusXM satellite show Monday, CNN host Chris Cuomo went on a stunning rant that included shots at President Trump and his current gig on the cable news network.
Cuomo’s diatribe included the usual insults of Trump, calling him “full of s***,” despite a recent admission from Cuomo’s brother, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, that the President always asks about Chris’s health during their conversations.
Anti-Trump hatred is expected from a Cuomo. What wasn’t expected were his follow-up comments that – intentional or otherwise – reflected very poorly on his current employer.
Cuomo told listeners that his current role at CNN is not worth his time, is a gig designed for “hyper-partisanship” (code for media bias) and amounts to “trafficking in things that I think are ridiculous.”
Honestly, that should be the official mission statement for CNN.
“I don’t want to spend my time doing things that I don’t think are valuable enough to me personally,” Cuomo said according to the New York Post.
“I don’t value indulging irrationality, hyper-partisanship.”

Rethinking His Career
According to the anchor, his recent diagnosis of COVID-19 has made him rethink his career choices.
“I don’t like what I do professionally,” he said. “I don’t think it’s worth my time.”
Cuomo went on to explain that he doesn’t want to spend his time “trafficking in things that I think are ridiculous” which include Republicans who “[parrot] things they feel they have to say” and Democrats who say “things that I don’t really believe they mean.”

Cuomo Is Full Of …
For a guy who doesn’t want to engage in hyper-partisan politics, he sure does enjoy trashing the President to placate his low-information viewers.
In a fairly recent segment, he cursed at President Trump for offering words of hope during the pandemic.
“‘I’m not going to prepare the way I should because it reinforces the bulls*** I’m telling you and I’m going to hope you’re okay with it,'” he claimed Trump was saying.
He was caught deceptively editing a clip to make it appear that Trump didn’t take action on the coronavirus because he didn’t want to upset people.
Even within this radio segment, Cuomo calls the President “full of s*** by design.”
Cuomo is Broken
And speaking of being ‘full of’ anything, Cuomo was recently caught embellishing his coronavirus ailments by sharing a perfectly normal x-ray of his lungs and telling his viewers how “scary” it was.
Oh hello, Board-certified diagnostic radiologist here.
Now I’m no neurosurgeon, and I only read 1000’s of CXRs every year, but to my eyes, that CXR is stone cold normal.

Cuomo’s partner in bias, CNN’s Don Lemon, also stated the era of Trump has broken him and robbed him of the joy of doing his job at the network.
“I wonder how long I will continue to do this particular job in the way I do it,” Lemon lamented, blaming Trump supporters for a toxic political environment.
Perhaps if either man was actually better at their job they wouldn’t be so down and out – and blaming everybody else for it.
UPDATE: Cuomo tried walking back the comments the next day.
